Color Me Magick Breath-taking Altar Cloth

Usually I pick up fabric yardage to make my altar cloths but this time around I found such a lovely one online that I could not resist it! Color Me Magick, the Etsy site of Meg Chobanian features unique and original designs that are hand-pieced. They are 100% pre-washed cotton and fully lined with no batting. The back of each altar cloth contains a design especially chosen to compliment its particular cloths properties. Directions for cleaning and storage are also included.
Each color is specially chosen for its individual magical energies, elemental and astral associations. They are purified with salt water and charged with Meg’s positive creative energies. Rectangular (24” x 33”) or square cloth that measures 27” of various colors and patterns there is one for every taste/wheel-of-the-year celebration. The center of the altar cloth is an eye-catching  9” pentacle, an original design that uses a unique technique called foundation piecing.
With each cloth Meg encloses a brochure that details the colors used ~ for instance, mine contains the colors of violet (empowers healing, peace and spirituality. It is associated with the Elemental of Earth, the herb Oak and Anointing oil of Lilac. And light blue which empowers health, patience, tranquility and understanding. It has associations with the elemental water, the Astral Colors of Aquarius and Capricorn, the herb Sandalwood and the day Monday.
Meg’s newest addition to her shop is her delightful bight and attention grabbing Elemental Collection of various sized votive holders and plates/altar dishes in beautiful bold colors of red, blue, green and yellow. They are all handmade by decoupage on glass using fine pieces of tissue over the outer surface of each clear glass piece. They are then protected by a few coats of acrylic sealer, making it waterproof and durable.  These bright color pieces are meant to be hand washed only. Meg is happy to provide her customers with a custom listing from the Elemental Collection at a special combined price. Alternate sizes and shapes are also available.

Meg’s motto ~” I offer this magick to you from me. / Take pleasure and power from the colors you see!”
